BLUR: THERES NO OTHER WAY

  • Blur lead singer Damon Albarn wrote this. It was part of a new category of music in England called “Indie-dance,” a combination of dance and alternative music that many bands were attempting.
  • This was the first Blur song produced by Stephen Street. Street had previously worked with The Smiths and would continue working with Blur.
  • This was Blur’s second single in England and first in the US. They tried to break into America by touring there in 1992, but it was a disaster.
  • After recording it as a demo, Blur thought of “There’s No Other Way” as being nothing more than an eventual B-side. Their management however was convinced about the potential of the song as forced the band to release it as the main single. >>
